03/22/2012 - Stanford Pro Day: Several other members of the Cardinal, while not candidates for the early rounds, helped their chances at hearing their names called at some point in the draft with strong efforts Thursday. "It's not just about the top guys that made today's workout so impressive," McKenzie said following the workout. "Obviously, (Stanford) has some guys who are going to be drafted very high. What was impressive was the number of guys on the field today that will get into a camp. That's the mark of a big-time program. And (Stanford) proved that they have a lot of those guys today." Some of "those guys" were versatile defensive backs Delano Howell, Michael Thomas and Johnson Bademosi - each of whom could earn late-round looks as safeties. Howell, a three-year all-conference selection, has solid tape and helped prove he has the athleticism to compete in the NFL with solid times in the 40-yard dash (4.52-4.57) - an improvement of nearly a tenth of a second from his fastest time at the Combine. Thomas, who was not invited to Indianapolis, also ran well (4.52-4.61) and added an impressive 38" vertical jump and 10'4" broad jump. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

01/02/2012 - Scouting the Stanford pass defense: This is the weakest aspect of the team, and that's a problem because Oklahoma State is one of the nation's best passing teams. The secondary does not cover particularly well, but the safeties Michael Thomas and Delano Howell are good players and the pass rush makes up for a lot of deficiencies at cornerback. OLB Chase Thomas has 8.5 sacks, and the team has 38. Opposing quarterbacks seldom have adequate time, but when they do, they are productive. Opposing teams complete 61 percent of their passes against Stanford, which has only six interceptions. Getting to Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden will be difficult because the Cowboys have yielded just 11 sacks despite passing often. - The Sports Xchange
